3 thoughts on “Information Everyone Needs

  1. Needing to learn how to layer when using air 2 . I have watched all kinds of videos and still can not get it. I have looked everywhere to find written step by step guides but had no luck..

  2. i was printing out an image and when it came to the 4 layer, it just kept cutting in the same spot. i tried changing blades, mats it always keeps cutting in the same spot until its cutting through to the mat. i then printed out a different layered image and it cut just fine. how do i fix the problem, cuz i really want to print that one image

    1. I think that there may be multiple copies on top of each other. Separate the whole project and check. Delete any extra copies and try again.
